Re: [R] General Plotting Question

Thanks for the help- It worked just fine: This will cast my ignorance across the table, but here it goes. Why do I need to make them a matrix? because they are in a row? if d <- as.matrix(f)
f.t <- t(d)
f.m <- as.data.frame(f.t)
now I could use just the following

plot(f.m[c(rownumber), column], f.m[c(rownumber), column])

?

I am sure that I need to brush up on underlying data structures, but I am trying to analyze data as we speak and R along with all of your help is an invaluable tool. Am I missing something easy, do I not understand the logic/philosophy, or...?
thanks

Stephen

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are so
little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and make us
feel like gods. We are mammals, and have not exhausted the annoying little
problems of being mammals.
